hello again. it's the top of the hour. let's have a look at the weather. >> let's look at@doppler. i was just uploading information for us. i think it's not bad news. here is this clapper system moving our way. let me show you here, this is pretty much going to paint the picture. the low that is the clipper is going to come over us, dragging mild air up the 95 corridor ahead of it moisture, which means we're looking at a mess, disruptive but not necessarily problematic. along the 95 corridor north and west we have a winter weather advisory in effect. you may get 3 to 6 inches.
6:03 am
but the sloppy mix could migrate north and west. this is once again going to become more of a mess, disruptive than problematic. as a matter of fact, temperatures at lunch will be above freeze. the low is going to be 36, 37 degrees, bringing the moisture into the neighborhoods. at dinner we're above freezing. we'll see a break in the action. the precip during the night will break. as it comes back, we'll have a burst of snow because we're at 27. so what we're talking about over 12 hours is a mix mess. compared to last week, it's a mosquito bite. the trend is for no change in this outlook. that's what i was checking on. that's good news. no surprises. thank you. here is sharon in the traffic control. >> nothing too major major.
6:04 am
we have an accident but not causing any delays, that's on the west side inner loop at baltimore international pike. no delays there. we have police activity in owings mills at 795, also east madison at inns brook. here is 95 at white marsh, smooth and delay free, same thing for west side, looking quiet at liberty road. we are always on at wjz.com. back to you. today we are continuing cleanup from last week's two storms. it's a race against time to get the schools back open. >> reporter: good morning, everyone. most schools in the area didn't open a single day last week. with more snow on the way, howard county officials are
6:05 am
saying they won't hold classes again tomorrow. the big question is will other schools follow? an unexpected week off for thousands of students across the state last week as a historic snowstorm crippled every kept in maryland. with cleanup still under way and more snow forecast for tonight, officials are using the president's day holiday to get things ready for tomorrow. >> we do need the extra time. it's a 100-year storm. it's unprecedented. we need as much time and help as possible. >> reporter: baltimore's mayor helped city employees clear snow near schools and today asking for more help to clear sidewalks so children can get to school without walking in the middle of the street. >> we have to make sure schools are ready to open tuesday. if you're and able bodied person with a shovel and school if your neighborhood, please

6:11 am
advisories in effect. could that be extended south and east? it's almost a done deal. you have to understand, we're talking about over 12 hours, if even that. this could be here and gone in seven hours. 1 to 3 inches around the metro and south. once you get through the 50 corridor, we have basically rain rain. i'm not sure, it may be as vile as that graphic makes it look. it's a clipper system that will take temperatures by lunch above freezing, into the mid- and upper 30s in the afternoon, and though we're going to have the mix mess this afternoon, we're still above freezing at dinner time. there's a break in the action as it gets cold, maybe a quick burst of snow right before
6:12 am
bedtime. go back to the graphic here. noon through midnight, we're not talking about a ton of moisture or energy coming in here. i'm holding out hope for that 3 to 6 inches to migrate north and west. so we'll talk more about that, more first warning weather after the break. we need a manic monday in a bad way. last week we were in total snow coverage t. e-mails came in. >> reporter: we got it this morning, 34 days until springtime. it's manic monday at jiffy lube of maryland hand the american heart association when we come back. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
